      what, it should be the opposite. the lazier the engine the longer it last.

        This is boomer logic, probably applicable to giant V8 engines which have a redline at 4000 rpm. Otherwise low oil pressure condition is not conducive to long engine life. I know EPA thinks le low rpm = le good, but they're wrong.

          the C6.R race car can redline at 8k RPM, but it hovers around 4k RPM the whole race to conserve fuel and increase reliability. its the whole reason Pratt and Miller had such great pitting strategies that would rack up wins.

    You think low rpms are bad for engine longevity? You're wrong. Its the opposite.

    I will take the smaller car 100% of the time unless it's more underpowered, smaller = more maneuverable and I'm not a fatfrick.

        Based. 'ate cheap interiors, 'ate 'yota, simple as.

        >cheaper
        That's probably it

        This.
        Usually the point of compacts is to target a lower price bracket, but the manufacturer goes beyond that and cheapens out on quality as well as size.
        I wish there were a way to get an E segment interior in a B segment car, but it's just not doable. You either size up or put up with shittier quality all around. Notable exception would be some French cars in the 90s, see ZX (pic related).
        It was simpler than the Xantia and XM but wasn't worse. It's an interior you'd want to be in. Unlike the atrocious interiors on lower end Toyotas which seem designed to convince you to buy the bigger car, not because it's better but to get away from the lower ones.

        Hondas are for girls, Toyotas too for that matter. Also I just don't like big cars, simple as. I never find myself at much of a need to stuff my car full of stuff, but I always seem to find the need to slink through tight spaces.

    There is no point in getting a Camry nowadays because there is no standalone V6 option, the best closest car with similar characteristics is the Avalon, it’s not in production though and is pricy, but I love the avalon

      2026 Corolla will likely be the same. Hybrid only forces the price up which Toyota has slowly been doing over the years despite it being "economy" tier lol

    I tried a Camry. I think my Corolla is better. The Camry is literally the same car in every conceivable way, it even has the same plasticy build quality and ass suspension, the only difference is it's slightly larger.

          the S models have the lower end interior, though the X models do get a bit more than the lowest end base models.

          The XLE is the one with the nicest interior, and the 2025 model looks especially nice.

            True. I hate the flat grill though. The 2025 XSE looks cooler outside but everything else about the XLE is made for me.

            I honestly enjoy the aesthetic of both the S and L versions of the 2025 model. I'm gonna do a test drive hopefully in a few weeks.
